Sorry, Tool fans, but reports that guitarist Adam Jones told a fan that the band had finished their new album and that it will be released this year aren’t exactly right.
Tool released the following statement to Rolling Stone:
“Last night, Adam Jones, in a private conversation with fans attending the Portland Tool concert, joked that the band’s new album was not only finished but coming out the next day. Unfortunately, his off-the-cuff joke was taken out of context. Work on the forthcoming album is ongoing and as soon as it is done, trust me, we will be the first to let everyone know.”
Jones also Tweeted, “FYI, ‘The record’s done and it’s coming out tomorrow’ is what I said yesterday, followed by ‘just kidding. . . ‘”
